[This is How I Find Her] by [Sara Polsky] was a different take on dealing with mental illness for YA. Instead of the teen struggling with her own mental illness she is struggling with her mom who suffers from it. [Polsky] does a good job showing the struggles of those who love someone who has a mental illness in all different ways. I will be adding this book to my classroom library.
This is a great resource especially for men who are caretakers of their wives who are fighting a chronic illness.

This book was absolutely brilliant. I don't think I've ever seen a book deal with mental illness so well.

Watched Michael Clayton again last night. Great movie with an unexpected and touching portrayal of mental illness delivered superbly by Tom Wilkinson. Must-see.

Mental illness is no joke and I felt this made a bit of a mockery of it. The concept while interesting was poorly executed and everyone was blamed for her mental illness. It honestly triggered so many of us who do suffer or have dealt with people who suffer. I cant put into words how much was wrong with it.

Was interviewed by Bloomberg news reporter today concerning high cost of OCD med. I will let you all know if any of my stuff gets included in final piece. He found me through my mental illness blog. I have an orb on here about mental illness as well if any of you want to check it out. Yay! Mental health FTW!!!
